EURAM 2023 SIG 09 Organisational Behaviour Track 09 & MREV Special Issue

Companies, employees, and scholars alike have taken a growing interest in sustainable HRM (Ehnert et al., 2016; Stahl et al., 2020), especially in the face of current trends in the workplace – like remote working and digitalisation – in the post-COVID-19 era (McKinsey Global Institute, 2021). Since HRM practices affect not only employees but also the human, social, and environmental firm context (Rothenberg et al., 2017), developing more sustainable HRM systems can enhance social sustainability (Ehnert, 2009; Pfeffer, 2010) and help organisations reach their corporate sustainability goals (Taylor et al., 2012).

To achieve these organisational goals, however, the response of employees, work teams, and managers to sustainable HRM practices is crucial, as they hold a primary role in the success of sustainable HRM (Paulet et al., 2021). The common view is that sustainable HRM will positively affect employees (Aust et al., 2020), therefore assuming favourable responses at the individual level and consequently positive outcomes at the organisational level.

The growing embracement of sustainable HRM in today’s changing workplace provides excellent research opportunities to study its multifaceted, under-explored outcomes and to contribute to “Transforming Business for Good”. This track explores the impact of sustainable HRM on employee attitudes and behaviours, the interplay of sustainable HRM with other corporate initiatives and changing work practices, and its ultimate link to organisational-level outcomes.

Possible themes include but are not limited to:

  1. The impact of different sustainable HRM practices on shaping employee attitudes and behaviours at the individual and group level. Empirical evidence of both positive (e.g., employee well-being, engagement) and adverse outcomes for employees (e.g., burden requirements, unethical behaviours) are welcome.
  2. Organisational value creation and outcomes of using sustainable HRM (e.g., sustainable employment, innovation, performance)
  3. Possible synergies or redundancies stemming from the combination of sustainable HRM and other corporate sustainability initiatives and their effect on individual and organisational level outcomes
  4. The interplay between sustainable HRM and current trends in the workplace, such as remote work and digitalisation, and their effect on individual employee attitudes, behaviour, and performance.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

A differentiated Europe and its implications

The core objective of this course is to address differentiation as a central concern in European studies, across academic disciplines from political science, public policy and public administration, to law, sociology and history. All modern political systems are differentiated; the EU is distinctly so. Precisely how and what the implications are for the EU and its member states remain contested. The course aims to conceptualize differentiation, discuss causes and effects of differentiation, and show how differentiation manifests itself internally in the EU and in the EU’s relations with non-members.

Design Science

Abstract and Learning Objectives

Design Science Research (DSR) is a promising research paradigm that intends to generate knowledge on the design of innovative solutions to real-world problems. As such, DSR is specifically useful in contributing to the solution of societally and practically relevant challenges. At the same time, matured methodological foundations are available today, specifically supporting publishing DSR research both at conferences and top-tier journals.

This course gives an introduction to Design Science Research (DSR). It focuses on planning and conducting design science research on Ph.D. level. It is intended to provide state-of-the art methodological competences for all Ph.D. students in business whose research is not solely descriptive/explanatory, but also comprises components where artefacts are purposefully designed and evaluated.

While Design Science Research is very common in Information Systems research, purposeful artefact design and evaluation are found in many other business research fields like, e.g., General Management, Operations Management/Management Science, Accounting/Controlling, Business Education, or Marketing. Although Design Science is often conducted implicitly, the methodological discourse in the Information Systems has led to a high level of reflection and to the availability of a large number of reference publications and cases, so that examples and cases will often originate from this domain. It should however be noted that Design Science as a paradigm is applicable and is used in nearly all fields of business research. As a consequence, this class is not only part of the Information Systems ProDok curriculum, but intentionally being positioned as cross-domain class.

The goal of the course is to provide Ph.D. students with insights and capabilities that enable them to plan and conduct independent Design Science research. To achieve this goal, students will engage in a number of activities in preparation and during this four-day course, including preparatory readings, lectures, presentations, project work, and in-class discussions. The course format offers an interactive learning experience and the unique opportunity to obtain individualized feedback from leading IS researchers as well as develop preliminary research designs for their own Ph.D. projects.
